The microfluidic puzzle: chip-oriented rapid prototyping

Abstract : We demonstrate a new concept for reconfigurable microfluidic devices from elementary functional units. Our approach suppresses the need for patterning, soft molding and bonding when details on a chip have to be modified. Our system has two parts, a base-platform used as a scaffold and functional modules which are combined by ‘plug-and-play’. To demonstrate that our system sustains typical pressures in microfluidic experiments, we produce droplets of different sizes using T-junction modules with three different designs assembled successively on a 3 × 3 modular scaffold.
